The Faculty Committee and Admission to Candidacy
The graduate music student must apply for admission to candidacy one semester prior to the proposed graduation semester. Before the student applies for admission to candidacy, a committee of graduate music faculty is determined in consultation with the Chair of the Department of Music. The committee must consist of three graduate faculty members, including the student's major professor and two additional graduate faculty members who have worked with the student during his or her program of study.
Upon establishing the graduate faculty committee, the student must complete an Application for Admission to Candidacy to be forwarded to the Dean of the Graduate School for approval. Each of these forms is available in the Department of Music office or the Graduate School.
